    32 Practical Products That’ll Help You Get Your Act Together

    Because useful things are great.

    1. An elevated laptop stand that'll save you from slouching over your desk while you work (good posture is important, people!). It'll keep the bottom of your computer exposed, so it won't overheat, even during a long day of surfing and scrolling.

    2. An anti-spill drink holder that'll save you from knocking your coffee onto your computer. It fits cups and mugs of all sizes, and has a micro-suction base that holds on tight, but won't leave behind residue on your table.

    4. A hanging gift wrap organizer that'll keep your rolls and ribbons from taking over your desk this holiday season. It has long side compartments that'll fit full rolls of paper and smaller pockets down the middle for accents and accessories.

    7. A handy razor cap that'll save your shaving doodad from going rusty. It'll also protect your blade while you're traveling, so it won't nick anything in your toiletry bag.

    8. This sweary tear-off planner pad, so you'll know exactly what you need to do and when you need to do it. It breaks down your priorities, schedule, health and fitness goals, achievements, water intake, and even has space for notes.

    9. An ultra-slim Keurig machine that'll brew one perfect cup of coffee at a time, so you won't have to pour half a pot down the drain. Reviewers love that it doesn't take up a lot of counter space, which is essential if you have a small kitchen.

    10. A 20-pack of Mason jar-shaped snack bags that'll keep your pantry staples and bulk snacks in order. They're smaller than actual jars, so they'll save you some serious space, too.

    11. This oversized heating pad that'll help banish aches and built-up tension with its magical warming powers, saving you from hobbling around in pain. It's made of soft, plush material that makes it comfortable enough to wear on bare skin.

    12. A pack of reusable interdental brushes that have soft nylon bristles and are small enough to fit in your pocket. They're way more effective than traditional floss and are especially great if you have permanent retainers.

    13. A light-up mirror compact, so that you can check your brows and reapply your lipstick when you're on the go. One side is magnified, meaning you can use it for tweezing and hunting down blackheads, too.

    14. A stove cleaning kit that'll make your cooktop look good as new in just a few minutes. Just apply the cream to your burners, wait a few minutes for it to sink in, and then scrub away the gunk with the spongey cleaning tool. For super stubborn messes, you can scrape off build up with the razor.

    15. A set of stick-on cord clips that'll save you from having to crawl under your desk every time your phone or computer battery hits low power. They're so small that they won't mess up the look of your desk, if you're concerned about aesthetics.

    16. A genius water bottle that'll track how much you're drinking throughout the day, so you'll never be stuck wondering, "have I actually had enough H2O today?" A new dot appears on the lid every time the bottle is refilled, so you can easily monitor your progress.

    17. A phone grip, if you're constantly dropping your device, but bulky phone sockets aren't your style. It'll lay flat on your phone and is large enough to fit all of your fingers through when you want a more secure grip.

    18. A pair of genius beauty product spatulas that'll help you get every last bit of product out of your makeup containers. Gone are the days of throwing out half of your $72 holy grail foundation before it's even done.

    19. A set of tie-free laces that'll transform your favourite pair of shoes into slip-ons. Now you can take out the trash without breaking down the backs of your runners (because obviously, you're too lazy to untie them).

    20. Or an extra-long shoe horn that'll make sliding on your tighter shoes a breeze. Reviewers love that the faux leather handle keeps it from getting frosty when it's sitting by an entryway.

    21. A pair of pantry organizers that'll keep your sauces, spices, and snacks from eating up a ton of cupboard space. They're transparent, so you'll be able to see exactly what's inside in a single glance.

    25. A 2-in-1 fabric shaver and lint roller that'll help remove pilled-up fabric and fuzz from your clothes. You can also use it on linens, like your fleece bedsheets, which is obviously a major win.

    26. A pack of sticky index tabs that you can use to bookmark important pages in your textbooks. They're slimmer than bulky divider sheets and have blank faces, so you can write little notes telling you what pages they'll lead you to.

    31. A pair of footwear deodorizers to keep your kicks from stinking up your entire home. They're packed with activated charcoal that prevents the buildup of harmful mould, mildew, bacteria, and fungi, so your feet will be healthier and happier, too.

    32. And finally, a pack of reusable faux leather cleaning pads that'll wipe away smudges and make your screens sparkle. The elastic strap on the back makes them easy to hold, so they're perfect for anyone who suffers from mobility issues.
